Hanger messages

I'd like to see hanger messages; such as "ordinance disbled" or ""Fuel 25% only"  to have the two radio buttons re labled as "accept" and "re-load".

"Re-load" would return you to the hanger; whilst "accept" would launch.

The curent set up is illogical and irritating.

How about altering the hangar objects when resources are destroyed?  If fuel tanks aren't available, show a crumpled bit of junk where the fuel tank was.  If only 50% fuel is avail, show only 2 oil barrels.  For the percentage of the base that is wrecked, show the hangar with various stages of damage.  If fighters aren't available, trying to select a fighter will show you a collapsed hangar sitting on your plane.

Make it intuitive and part of the game, not something the mystical arena dungeon master text bot has to tell you :)
Everyone I know, goes away, in the end.
